This Is A Good Read

Recommended Posts

I found this on someones' 2nd Amendment Timeline:

 

When I was 19 years old I joined the United States Army, I raised my hand and took an oath, I swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; I took this obligation deadly serious then and for every minute up until now.

My fear today is that the greatest enemy of our Constitution is indeed domestic and it it rooted in generations of ignorance. I am personally GREATLY concerned that the vast majority of Americans have lost sight of or worse never know what the founding of this great Constitutional Republic was all about and what it was meant to be. I am mortified that the Individual Rights, Liberty and Freedom that our Founding Fathers Fought so hard to preserve for us seem so unimportant to so many Americans today.

I hope that reading and sharing these very important documents might help enlighten some of my fellow Americans. If you know anyone who might like to or should read them PLEASE Forward this along to them.

All Americans should read these documents.

The Anti-federalist Papers No. 1 through No.85 here:

The Federalist Papers were written and published during the years 1787 and 1788 in several New York State newspapers to persuade New York voters to ratify the proposed constitution.

In total, the Federalist Papers consist of 85 essays outlining how this new government would operate and why this type of government was the best choice for the United States of America. All of the essays were signed "PUBLIUS" and the actual authors of some are under dispute, but the general consensus is that Alexander Hamilton wrote 52, James Madison wrote 28, and John Jay contributed the remaining five.

The Anti-Federalist Papers is the collective name given to works written by the Founding Fathers who were opposed to or concerned with the merits of the United States Constitution of 1787. Starting on 25 September 1787 (8 days after the final draft of the US Constitution) and running through the early 1790s, these anti-Federalists published a series of essays arguing against a stronger and more energetic union as embodied in the new Constitution. Although less influential than their counterparts, The Federalist Papers, these works nonetheless played an important role in shaping the early American political landscape and in the passage of the US Bill of Rights.
